Bella Moto

916

Fabio Taglioni’s most sublime creation. The Ducati 916. Released in 1994 it has the most pure lines that could outline Ducati masterpiece.

Union Jack

Nineties Hare

What better way to celebrate the Britishness of a burly 1200cc Daytona than to wrap the bodywork in the red, white and blue of the Union Flag. Unfurl your patriotism and twist the throttle until the deep rumble transforms into a high howl. Hang on! Things are about to get exciting!

Royal Enfield happiness

– sunny day and a coffee stop on the North Shore. Enthusiast RE owner Scott showed us his cherished Indian ride with a few alterations made to suit his needs. He’s been enjoying it for many a thousand miles over the last 6 months.

City of Angels

White Ninja

Parked on a side street in the historical district of Los Angeles. Motorcycles are certainly a much used type of transportation here on the west coast. In the typical SoCal traffic they are the best thing to get about on!

WW2 Motorcycle

NoLa

Some photos of Harleys and DKW’s taken by my riding buddy Dean during his recent visit to the National WW2 Museum in New Orleans. Based where the Higgins Boat, or LCVP, we’re built. These were the landing craft that brought US soldiers to shore in every major amphibious assault of World War II.

A canopy flush

After the leaf drop…

Temperatures in the upper fifties and blue sky. So a run up along the Lake was called for. It would certainly have been rude not to. Pumpkin spice latte and chocolate chip cookie at a coffee shop in Lake Bluff gave the destination a purpose.

Owld Gal

Ruby Red Sprint

Spied on Chicago Avenue this evening. A solid machine being enjoyed on a balmy November evening. It had a pleasant throaty rumble. Nike basketball boots are period perfect too!

Pumpkin Orange

Jack-a-Lantern

The Tigers battery was flat (I’d left the GPS plugged in from a couple of weeks ago) so I decided to take the Bonnie out for a wee spin. Bit lumpy to start with – old fuel- but she I was able to open ‘er up a bit. An electrical short in north Evanston saw me head back to the garage. But a good few mile run after sitting for a few years. Winter maintenance is on the cards.

Worn out, and a bit shabby

TLC

– I should find something to get my idle hands onto. A Vincent or Norton looking for a warm workshop. Recovery through Restoration. Apologies for the lack of posts, a few personal issues arose these past few weeks. Hope to get a few things shifting on the Blog soon.
